Toshiba Adds Triac Output Photocouplers to Product Lineup

Reinforced Insulation Enables New TLP265J and TLP266J to Meet International Safety Standards

IRVINE, Calif., March 12, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — Toshiba America Electronic Components, Inc., (TAEC)*, a committed leader that collaborates with technology companies to create breakthrough designs, has announced the addition of the 600V TLP265J and TLP266J to its extensive lineup of photo triac couplers.  They are ideal for applications such as triac drivers, programmable controllers, AC output modules, and solid-state relays.

The TLP265J consists of a non-zero crossing photo triac, and the TLP266J consists of a zero crossing photo triac, and both are optically coupled to a gallium arsenide infrared emitting diode. Using a SO6 double-mold package, the TLP265J and TLP266J achieve reinforced insulation at an isolation voltage of 3750Vrms (AC, 1 minute). Having obtained the UL, cUL, and VDE approvals for creepage distance and clearing distance (5mm, min.), the TLP265J and TLP266J meet the reinforced insulation class requirements of international safety standards.

In terms of electrical characteristics, the new triac couplers support up to 7 mA of trigger LED current, which allows for output control at a lower input current - thus contributing to lower power consumption. Support of reflow mounting in accordance with JEDEC standards makes the TLP265J and TLP266J easy to use, and long-life LEDs increase design flexibility.

Features of the TLP265J and TLP266J include:

  • Reinforced insulation, support of mounting in accordance with the JEDEC standard, IFT7
  • UL, cUL and VDE approvals
  • Peak off-state voltage: 600V (min)
  • Trigger LED current: 10 mA (max); IFT7 version: 7 mA (max)
  • On-state current: 70 mA (max)
